Thanks to the lovely invention that is the Facebook newsfeed, I stumbled onto this YouTube video astutely titled "Party In Brooklyn Today."  It seems that our protagonist, hereforth known as Yid in Orange Polo, thought he had what it takes to redo Miley Cyrus’ smash hit "Party in the USA."  Little did Yid in Orange Polo know, that despite his well-placed shidduch and Lipa Schmeltzer references, that Jewish Brooklyn is just no match for Miley. 

I have a few questions about this video, mainly being that I cannot for the life of me understand where he is filming this.  Is this where Yid in Orange polo sleeps?  Is this his daughter’s room?  Why is everything so pink? The real triumph, though, is the artful hand with which YIOP has re-written Miley’s lyrics.  Still, I’m gonna have to label this pitiful parody a failure of the best kind.  See for yourself below.
